Playa Grande Resort & Grand Spa in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

Wake to the bright morning sun rising high over the Baja Peninsula, warming the sparkling waters of the Pacific and the Sea of Cortez, and prepare to enjoy a fabulous day at Playa Grande Resort & Grand Spa. On a private stretch of beach, near downtown Cabo San Lucas, this all-suite resort is a scintillating home away from home. Inviting hacienda-style suites are comfortably plush with an simple elegance and relaxed design. Modern amenities ensure your every comfort, while a kitchenette or full kitchen is an added convenience, and deep soaking tubs are perfect for unwinding after a day at the beach. Step out through sliding glass doors onto your private terrace and breathe in the refreshing ocean air before diving into the surf. At Playa Grande Resort & Grand Spa, the coast of Mexico has never looked so beautiful.

After a wonderful Mexican and American breakfast buffet at Calima, make your way down to the beach, or pamper yourself at the European-style Thalasso Spa with a seawater bath and seaweed treatment. Stretch out on the golden sands to soak in the sun, glide along the coast in a kayak, or enjoy an exciting ride aboard a wave runner. Take a snorkeling or scuba tour to stunning sites throughout the Sea of Cortez, enjoy a luxurious cruise aboard a yacht, or head out on the open ocean with a sport fishing charter. Play a magical game of golf at nearby Cabo Del Sol, Campo de Golf, or Cabo San Lucas Country Club, and delight in the picturesque scenery as you work on your stroke. With the sun setting majestically over the horizon, sit down to fabulous Mexican cuisine at The Brigantine and dine on the oceanfront. Sip a refreshing, perfectly blended cocktail while you watch the sun sink, and relax in the comforts of Playa Grande Resort & Grand Spa.

This hotel is one of the finest and a classic. It is a very large resort with views of the Pacific and The Sea Of Cortez and Cabo San Lucas Marina and the city. The staff is very friendly and they speak fluent English. It's great for romance while the kids play under safe supervision. Highly Recommend

Found a deal on Expedia and it looked to be the nicest, most affordable resort that was NOT beachfront. Beachfront places were significantly more expensive. However, the photos are a bit misleading. Although Playa Grande is beachfront to the Pacific Ocean, what they don't mention is that you ABSOLUTELY should not swim in the Pacific if you value your life. And based on the size of the waves I saw, they're correct. So, the only swimming @ Playa Grande will be in one of their pools. You can walk down the beach toward the tip of the Baja Peninsula but it's quite risky to get to the actual tip {Los Arcos (The Arch)/Playa del Amor (Lover's Beach)/Divorce Beach} because you have to climb over slick rock with the violent waves smashing into it. While I enjoyed that there was some music played @ the pool throughout the day because the music was so loud/central it permeated everywhere, which made reading my book in the afternoon poolside difficult. Not everyone considers blaring pop music relaxing. Staff was always very courteous, hard-working and helpful with nearly everyone being bilingual (with Spanish-English). Lobby was gorgeous and clean, however only two (or one) concierge on hand for a lot of guests so we often had to wait. One adult pool -- which I appreciate -- but it's very close to the three other, family-friendly pools so I'm not sure what the point is?! Swim up bars were a nice addition. Unfortunately, none of the pools went deeper than ~5 feet so these really for just cooling off. There were two separate happy hours each day. Drinks and food were a bit overpriced but I think it was typical pricing for Cabo resorts. Although I thought the Mexican Fiesta -- every Monday night -- was expensive and would be corny, it ended up being a great time with fun music and heaps of audience involvement. I highly recommend it! The resort has kids' activities and all-age activities. Some had a fee; some did not. However, the activities were usually repeated every other day so not much of a variety. I believe guests have access to Solmar -- Playa Grande's sister resort -- so you could take advantage of Solmar's activities (they had a few different offerings) I think, but we did not. The gift/grocery shop on site has the best variety of any of the mini-marts we found nearby in the city (Walmart is not walkable). All rooms have a balcony and -- at some point in the day -- most of the balconies will receive some sort of sun. Bed was comfortable though I wouldn't consider the pull out sofa bed to be a "bed" as advertised. Those things are NEVER comfortable. TV had a lot of channels. I did not drink the tap water but used it for brushing teeth and (thankfully) I never became ill. My biggest gripe about Playa Grande is its location. It is on the far end of the marina -- near the end of the Baja peninsula/The Arch. To get to Medano Beach, the nearest swimmable beach, is a FAR walk. It's do-able, but so far (since you have to weave along the marina's ins and outs) that it doesn't make you want to walk there again anytime soon. However, you can hire a water taxi for ~10 USD at the marina.

Horrible hotel, the staff especially the manager does not care one bit if your a unhappy customer. IT was a horrible experience and I would never stay here again or advice anyone to consider this resort.

First the resort: The good. Very large, very clean, great grounds. Beautiful furniture with art on most walls. Adult pool in the Ridge property.( when kids aren't in it as they don't police it very well). Beautiful views from all Villas. Really well stocked kitchens. The bad. Blasting music all day ( 11:00~4:30 ) with the old school resort microphones blaring the Macarena and "Sweet Caroline". All inclusive option for $100 a day per person. If you dont do this the restaurants on property are way over priced with $15 drinks and $40 dinners. Absolutely unusable beach for swimming. A long steep walk to town compared to any other properties. The Great? The staff ! Jesus Rubio at the front desk is absolutely the epitome of the welcoming attitude few resorts truly have. I've stayed in a dozen resorts in Cabo and Cabo San Jose and most are trained by the proverbial papagayo (parrot) " My Pleasure, My Pleasure". This resort has professional people who truly care about their guests. Mr. Rubio goes way beyond the norm to make you feel that you are the most important person in the resort. And to him, you are. In the concierge group Mr. Isaac Flores shows a caring and concerned effort to suggest the best for you. He is not "locked" to sharing only comissionable activities and eateries but provided everything from locals venues to the top rated tourist attractions. His insight as to your safety and enjoyment are to be commended. His knowledge of the area and the history are exemplary and his ability to relate to his guests is outstanding. In my opinion having stayed for extended periods at Marquis, Hilton, JW Marriot in San Jose, Dreams, Cabo Azul in San Jose ( my favorite) and many others the Playa Grande has the best staff by far. The difference...? The absolute care the people here share with you. There are many nice resorts here and dozens in construction right now but how the people there make you feel is notably different at the Playa Grande.

Great resort. Staff was nice and accommodating. Our room was great. Will definitely return to Playa Grande Resort. From the time that we arrived to the time we left, we were well taken care of by the amazing staff in all departments. The resort is within walking distance to the marina and the nightlife. We truly enjoyed our time in Cabo and Playa Grande resort. The food at the resort was great as well.
